Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Welcome to the Magical World of Brian Desmond Hurst... Christopher Robbins first met Brian Desmond Hurst when he was hired to write the screenplay for the aging director's swansong. A great raconteur, Brian Desmond Hurst captured the young writer's imagination during their adventures in London, Ireland, Malta and North Africa. The stories of a Belfast childhood, service in Gallipoli during the First World War and a long film career were told by a master. Aware that he had met the last of a grand and vanishing breed, the author was forever changed by the old director's wit, wickedness, Celtic charm and vast appetite for life. Very funny and genuinely moving, 'The Empress Of Ireland' is an inspiring portrait of a true original and Great Spirit - and a rare account of a unique and eccentric friendship.
